The Golden Goose Book


Published September 3, 2006


A charming little book full of the most gorgeous illustrations which can be viewed along with the Gutenberg text at http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/15661.
We see a number of stories in which kindness is rewarded and selfishness is punished but Brooke squeezes a number of intriguing and quite bizarre twists and turns into the story so it is not nearly so predictable as you might imagine.
Victorian moral fairy tales from a delightfully inventive mind.
(Summary by Jim)
